Breastfeeding tip : Recognising a growth spurt

* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

default Feeding more through the night

Post by kay on Wed Jul 16, 2008 7:00 am

Corey is feeding much more through the night than the day at the moment.
During the day, he has good, long feeds, well spaced out (i dont count, and i dont time lol!).
At night, he is just on and off all night - short, snacking sort of feeds. TBH, I dont know how many times, how often or anything - i dont look at the clock or even open my eyes really Razz

Its not affecting my sleep too much, and it isnt a problem, but does anyone elses LO do this? is it common?

Yes I remember this well! When Brody didn't want to sit still much in the day to feed he would make up for it in the night Very Happy
